Tracking and Versioning on the Cheap
Earl Schubert, CEO, United States, Member
Low cost method...
1. Utilize ISO QC numbering methodology to place p&p's into "like" groups.
2. By group, develop and implement a master numbering schematic for all documents.
3. Utilize the power of spreadsheet capability to define the current statics of documents (no., description., revision level, eco/ecn outstanding, etc.)
4. Use "swim lane" process to define flow of documentation... Identify process, locus of control, etc.
5. Incorporate process (along with approval responsibility) into progressive columns of spreadsheet.
6. Insert all current status
7. Name responsible party; set deadlines, manage for results.
In all, 200 documents is not a large volume to document and control... Just needs to be organized and managed on a daily basis. Ensure you have Sr. Management backing on this. Without their backing you will never reach your goal... You need corporate teeth and the ability to use them when necessary.
